Group Size
Limited to 14 Travelers
A very important feature of our Alaska adventure is the limited group size, as nature expeditions and wildlife encounters are best experienced in a quiet, intimate context.

Take this trip on a private basis, traveling exclusively with your immediate family, multi-generational family or group of friends. Click here for details and pricing.

  • Internal air cost includes: Scheduled flights from Anchorage to King Salmon and float plane flights from King Salmon to Brooks Falls (this will be listed separately on our invoicing).
Not Included
Travel to and from the start and end point of your trip, dinner on Days 6 and 9, alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport and visa fees (if any), optional activities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, laundry and internet, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes (if any), required medical evacuation insurance, optional travel protection insurance.
Physical Requirements
Moderate
The activities on our Alaska wildlife adventure are diverse, requiring general mobility and fitness. The longest required walk is one mile one-way over a relatively flat wooden boardwalk to reach the Brooks Falls viewing platform from the main lodge in Katmai National Park, where we observe the brown bears. Trail surfaces for our various walks vary from pavement to uneven natural terrain. While all travelers must be able to walk at least two miles without assistance, some longer hikes are available for those who desire. Travelers may have the opportunity to participate in optional kayaking, on Fox Island, weather permitting. Though no prior kayaking experience is required, general fitness and mobility, including the ability to get into and out of a kayak, are essential. We stress that travelers are not required to participate in every activity, but all participants must be generally physically fit and have the ability to walk two miles unassisted.

On custom or private departures with smaller groups, our ability to accommodate varying levels of physical abilities or interests is limited, since these trips are staffed with a single Expedition Leader who may be assisted, pending availability, by local guides.
Important Information About This Trip
This trip ventures far afield from the typical Alaska tour circuit where large motorcoaches move long lines of cruise clients to crowded destinations. A few details you should be aware of: The day we transit from the remote heart of Denali National Park to Talkeetna is a long one (10 hours), but it includes magnificent scenery the entire way, and we travel by both small bus and train. Solar power is available during daytime hours at Kenai Wilderness Lodge. All Ultimate Alaska trips begin in Fairbanks and end in Anchorage.

A prime focus of our Alaska adventure is bears, which, naturally, should be treated with caution. At Brooks Falls, thousands of visitors have traveled here to view bears over the past 50+ years and, to our knowledge, there has never been a bear attack. But we never know exactly what bears are thinking, so we ask our travelers to consider this and pay close attention to the rules set forth by the park rangers.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we strongly recommend that all guests have, at minimum, medical evacuation insurance for this program. While this is not required, we make this strong suggestion in the interest of our guests' safety. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
This adventure begins in Fairbanks and ends in Anchorage. Arrive in Fairbanks, Alaska by 4 pm on Day 1 of the program in order to attend a 6 pm orientation followed by a 7 pm welcome dinner. You are free to depart Anchorage any time on the final day.
